    Unit price per 

8 input HD/SD-SDI video switcher with 1 M/E and FLEX Source. It has 4 keyers with built-in DSK, 2 Chromakey, 4 AUX outputs, 2 Still Stores, and many other features. Processor Unit only. Panel software for PC will be provided.

Available as either an 8, 12, or 16-input model, the SE-3000 is a purpose built, fast, and easy to use HD/SD live production switcher filled with an impressive number of features and functions. For example, it has a touch screen to select EFX, stills, and balance colors. Using a touch screen means that the operator does not have to remember effect numbers and can see what they are selecting. Additionally, it has dual multi-view outputs, chromakey, dual PiP, 3D functions, multi language support and a full size keyboard. The processing unit has a convenient, shallow front to back chassis, designed to accommodate mobile applications. An added interesting and powerful feature is the "Flex Source" component, which is similar to having a second M/E. See below for a connection schematic.

The 8 input version (HD only) is `one card' upgradable to the 12 or 16 input versions which includes 4 or 8 up converters, respectively. Every other feature is the same in all units.

Use Datavideo's PD-4 Power Distributor with redundant power to give energy more reliably to the SE-3000 Switcher. The PD-4 uses two power source connections to distribute electricity. If one power source fails, the PD-4 automatically uses the other to provide energy to your devices. This adds an extra level of reliability to your production setup.
